Val Kilmer Opens Up About Battling Throat Cancer

Val Kilmer

is opening up for one of the first times about his two-year battle with throat cancer.

As we reported, the 57-year-old actor often denied having health issues – but in a new feature with THR, it’s clear to see the cancer has taken its toll.

In the accompanying video, you can see the Heat star is visibly thin and has lost his signature baritone voice.

He admits fighting the disease changed his perspective on his career:

“I was too serious. I’d get upset when things like Oscars and recognition failed to come my way … I would like to have more Oscars than anybody. Meryl Streep must feel pretty good, you know? It must feel nice to know that everyone loves her. It’s about being loved.”

Watch him interact with his two adult actor children Jack, 22, and Mercedes, 26, in the clip (below):

Wishing you the best, Val!
